WITCHFUCKER ~ Atomhure (2018)



Witchfucker ~ Atomhure

Part doom, part stoner, part crust, ALL bludgeon, pretty much encapsulates the latest release from Germany's Witchfucker

From the straightforward (but excellent) opener, the stoned out, doom leaden 'Delirium' to the crust of 'Killed By System' and finally 'Barfuss durch die Hölle, a track that incorporates all of the above and does it exceptionally well, as does every aspect of Atomhure.

Vocals can often kill or cure and album of this kind, some prefer growl, others, clean, on Atomhure you get something in the middle which should suit everyone and compliments the nebulous atmosphere created by copious reverb and echo from the luscious solo's which abound, particularly on the track 'Assassin' which is given a spacey, psychedelic tweak that adds to the expansive sound of an album that gorges in the deepest pit of doom. In fact, the band has been very clever by adding the excellent vocal delivery of  Charlotte Lauel (Circus Of Fools) on the track 'Hiding From Yourself' going a long way to creating variation in an already diversely interesting album.

If I published an album of the month, Atomhure would have every chance of being 'it'

OMMADON ~ End Times (2018)


OMMADON ~ End Times


Droning doom, hulking riffs, summoning enough power to break The Titans free of their imprisonment from Tartarus, the deepest part of the Underworld. Each detonating chord capable of shuddering the Pearly Gates right off their hinges.



End Times is actually one song that has heaved itself into two, with categorically no respite from the enormity of the sound, leaving you slack jawed, eyes bulging from the weighty riffs, a doom diadem of improbable dimensions, its structure flattening everything in its path through suffocating atmospheric pressure. Ommadon is a band so heavy, it has its own gravitational pull.

Vocals are kept to the occasional primordial bellow, but the reality of it is that such is the vastness of sound, there is literally no room for any such distractions.

End Times is the Hadron Riff Collider, an atom smasher, capable of pulverizing sub atomic particles by riff alone.

Coming at you like an unstoppable avalanche on 1st May through these outlets. http://www.drycoughrecords.com/http://www.atwarwithfalsenoise.com/https://dgrecords.bandcamp.com/ and https://medusacrushrecordings.bandcamp.com/
